ADRIAN, Mich.--Adrian College Athletics announces an exclusive renewal with the Buckeye Cable Sports Network (BCSN) that will broadcast live four Adrian home football games this fall. This marks the fifth year of the media partnership, and the video feed of the games will also stream live on Adrian College Television (ACTV).
BCSN, with a full production crew and on-air talent to be determined, will televise the following contests from 3,500-seat Docking Stadium: the Sep. 24 (4 p.m.) Homecoming game versus Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the Oct. 15 (6 p.m.) Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association home opener with Hope, Oct. 22 (6 p.m.) against Kalamazoo as part of Family Weekend, and Nov. 5 (1 p.m.) versus Olivet on Senior Day.
“We are excited that this arrangement with BCSN is going into its fifth year, helping Adrian College reach a talent-rich area of northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan,” said Athletic Director Michael Duffy. “Our recruiting efforts in Greater Toledo have yielded many great student-athletes over the years. Showing our games on BCSN is a great recruiting tool. We have a great product here at Adrian College and want to showcase it with a great organization in the business of promoting young people.”
All of the games will air four times over BCSN and BCSN 2 on Buckeye Broadband, plus made available On-Demand and on the Watch BCSN app. BCSN has been covering local sports since its founding in 2003, and is widely regarded as a top-notch regional sports network covering teams such as the Toledo Mud Hens, NCAA Division I Bowling Green State University Falcons/ University of Toledo Rockets, Toledo Walleye, and numerous high school athletic events.
"Our relationship with Adrian College over these many years has been incredible. We at BCSN have the highest regard for the talented administrators, coaches, teachers, and student-athletes at Adrian," commented Tom Cole, who serves as BCSN Host and Community Development Coordinator. "We are thrilled to be able to bring these football broadcasts from Adrian that look like Rockwellian paintings on sunny fall afternoons. The College has been able to find the perfect balance between academics and athletics. All of us at BCSN and our TV viewers are again looking forward to the football season at Adrian."
